A Confession And A Poll

So, I realize I haven't been around much lately. It's a seasonal thing, I think. (Or, alternatively, a laziness thing.) It gets hot here and I don't want to do much of anything. I haven't been in the gym in forever, either, and my ass is tacking on pounds as we speak, if it makes you feel better.

Regardless, I'm here now and I have a confession to make: I'm more concerned with how my Diamondbacks are doing in the division than anything that's going on in the Olympics. It's not that I'm not invested in the Olympics. I mean, who could really avoid getting swept up in the Michael Phelps story? Well, I guess if your soul is black and your heart is a dry, shriveled husk, you have a good shot, but the last I checked, my soul is colorful and gay and my heart is pounding a merry jig, so I'm caught up in the mystique with the rest of the U.S. But still, the channel doesn't get changed to NBC until I know the final score of the D-backs game. This is my value system, people. Isn't it a marvel?

So on to the poll:

I place more importance on Diamondbacks baseball than the Olympic games. This means:

A) I am Un-American, Un-Patriotic, and quite possibly a Terrorist. I also have problems with random capitalization.
B) Baseball is as American as apple pie! Of COURSE I want to follow my team! Besides, the highlights of the Olympics will be all over the internet tomorrow, anyway.
C) When you get all judgey-judgey, God kills a puppy. Live and let live, bitchez!

I'm somewhere between A and C... but not B... I tell you what, I love me some olympics -- have since I was little. I'm not a huge sports fan but I gotta watch the olympics as much as I can. I've taken quicker showers this week than I have all year -- I might miss something! I try to time breaks for biking and volleyball -- those aren't my fave.

But then who cares if you watch it? I doubt 50% of Americans are watching it. We'd probably do good to get 25%.

Sorry about your team.. I was really hoping they would overtake the Dodgers.. at least the DB finished with a better record than the Rockies.. I guess there is always next year.. but it sure makes for a long winter!
